  • This is a well hidden gem. Two parking areas access this beach. If you will walk in any direction away from the crowds you will find your own tranquil secluded paradise. I walked the entire length of this beach - more that 2 miles and only ran into a few fishermen out side of the crowded beach areas by the parking lots. The cliffs are amazing and there are even a few cave like areas the ocean has worn away. You do have to pay 8.00 to park and the lot fills up so go early. The restrooms are a bit disgusting-basically like a porta potty but not even as nice. But at least there is one. There are picnic tables., I believe you an bar b q there also.
  • Nice little beach
